VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 953 7 

PUBLIC LIBRARIES GROUPED BY POPULATION 
OF AREA SERVED 

Grouping of public libraries on the basis of population served follows to some extent the 
classification of libraries employed in the Public Library Inquiry reports, which list these 
four: 

I. Libraries serving populations over 100,000. 
n. Libraries serving populations 25,000-99,999. 

III. Libraries serving populations 5,000-24,999. 

IV. Libraries serving populations under 5,000. 

This listing of all public libraries runs together county, district and municipal libraries 
within the four groups of population they serve (based on 1950 census figures). 

It should be noted, therefore, that the statistics for an individual library affiliated with a 
larger library will appear only under the larger population group of the entire library system 
(i.e., the total population served by all affiliated library units in one system, such as a county 
library and several affiliated municipal or district libraries, or such as two county libraries). 

Since population figures are for area served, the population listed for a county library 
would not include population of cities (in that county) operating separate, unaffiliated public 
libraries. Estimated population only was available for library districts (L. Dist., or U. H. S. L. 
Dist.). Population figures of affiliated libraries are listed in parentheses to indicate they have 
been included in the population figure for the larger service unit.

service. Facilities of the California State Library are available to all residents, however. Those who have no local 
library service may borrow directly from the State Library, and others may request service through their city or county 
libraries.

NON-RESIDENT BORROWER FEES 

A check of 1951-52 annual reports from California municipal libraries 
indicates that two-fifths of those libraries do not charge a non-resident 
borrower fee. In such cases the public library is considered a free com- 
munity service, available to all comers, just as city parks are open to all. 

By reciprocal service agreements between some California public li- 
braries, library cards of residents in adjacent communities are honored 
without charging non-resident borrower fees. This form of regional 
cooperation between libraries is most prevalent in southern California. 

About three-fifths of California municipal libraries do charge non- 
resident borrower fees, generally ranging from $1.00 to $5.00 per year. 

29 charge $2.00 per year

6 


' $1.50 " " 


5 


$2.50 " 


1 


' $5.00 " " 


1 


' $4.50 " " 



Miscellaneous charges include: $5.00 for 3 years; $1.50 for 6 months; 
25fS per week, per month, per quarter; 50^ for 3 months; $1 per year per 
family. Some charge a deposit ($2.00, $3.00 or $5.00) on books borrowed, 
but no fee. Lower deposit fees for children than for adults are indicated 
by 3 libraries, and for students by 2 libraries. 

There is indication some cities enlarge the meaning of "resident" to 
include those persons attending school in town, working in town or 
owning property in town even if not living within the city limits. 

The non-resident registration period usually is one year. For general 
borrowers, about three-fifths of the municipal libraries have a three-year 
registration period; 16 libraries have a two-year registration period, 10 a 
five-year period, 7 a four-year period, 2 a one-year period. In very small 
libraries, usually where borrowers are personally known to the staff, 
there is no definite registration period.

MOTION PICTURE FILMS IN PUBLIC LIBRARIES 
AS OF JULY, 1952 

The California State Library is buying 16 mm. motion picture films on library work 
and the technical aspects of librarianship, supplemented by others which will illustrate 
how libraries contribute to education, recreation and enrichment of community life. 
They are lent to California libraries or to groups interested in library affairs. 

Twenty-two public libraries rent films or belong to film circuits, and twenty own 
at least one film.

f Reports from the 157 municipal libraries indicated that only 30 maintained any service to the public on Sundays. Of the 
latter number, reading room privileges only (generally during the afternoon) were provided by 8 libraries, while the 
other 22 indicated that circulation and reference services also were provided on Sunday. Curtailment of funds for per- 
sonnel is most quickly reflected in decreased hours of service to the public. Fifty or about one-third of the city libraries 
have an earlier closing hour on Saturday than on the Monday to Friday schedule each week. 

'* Professional and part-time employees excluded from civil service. 

Dependent on length of service. 

For full-time employees with 1 to 15 years service, 2 calendar weeks; for 15 years or longer service, 8 calendar weeks. 

For service up to 15 years, 10 working days; for service from 15 to 22 years, 15 working days; for service over 22 years, 20 
working days. 

Thirty days: 5 days at 100% pay; 5 days at 75% pay; 20 days at 50% pay. 

For less than 5 years sernce, 11 working days; for 5 years or more service, 15 working days. 

If Sunday work, 24; otherwise 12. 

Allowance 10 to 15 days, depending on length of service. 

Allowance 10 to 60 days, depending on length of service. 

Allowance 10 days for less than 5 years service; 15 days for more than 5 years service.

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

ANNUAL STATISTICS 

Annual report blanks were sent in June, 1952, to all California libraries 
except those of elementary schools and those which belong to private 
individuals and are not open to the pubHc. 

Except when otherwise noted, statistics from the public library annual 
reports cover the period from July 1, 1951 to June 30, 1952. The school 
year 1951-52 is used as the time basis for school library reports. All 
reports are arranged under city and county by name of library, and 
counties are arranged alphabetically. To determine the county in which 
any place is located see the Place Index, page 44, which includes loca- 
tions of branch and station libraries that are listed elsewhere only under 
the main library. For arrangement of libraries by subject or type refer 
to the annual Index Supplement to New Notes of California Libraries. 

The Public Library Statistical Report, a standard form for gathering 
statistics on city, county and district libraries throughout the United 
States, was used as a basis for the more detailed forms we distribute. 
Special forms on postal cards are used for annual reports from all other 
types of libraries. 

Problems in regard to the collecting of library statistics center chiefly 
on three objects: currency of news, accuracy of information, and uni- 
formity in methods of calculating totals. For accomplishment of these 
objects, directories, professional journals and printed items about Cali- 
fornia libraries (as gathered by a newspaper clipping agency) are checked 
constantly for facts in addition to those reported directly to the State 
Library each year by librarians. Chief librarians listed under names of 
libraries are those most recently reported in ofiice up to the time of 
publishing these statistics. 

In order that libraries will compile the totals they report in a uniform 
manner, the following requirements and definitions have been applied: 

The assessed valuation as given for each county does not include the value of 
intangible property, a third of the tax on which goes to the county. Figures are 
based on the annual statement, "Value of Property in and Indebtedness of Each 
County," California State Controller's Office. 

Population statistics are given for counties and for all towns having municipal 
libraries. Federal government population figures as of the 1950 Census Report have 
been used. 

For the purpose of this publication, a municipal or city free library is one which 
has been legally established by city officials, is supported by income from taxation 
or other public funds, and has its own trustees or other civil governing body. 

An agency is any place, such as a central library, branch, station, or bookmobile 
station, that, as an integral part of the public library system, distributes books or 
otherwise renders library service to the public. 

The total nu?nber of distributing agencies of a public library includes the central 
Ubrary as well as its branches and stations. To avoid duplication in count, then, the 



42 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

central office of a county library is neither counted again nor listed as a separate 
community branch or station, regardless of the type of service it gives to the com- 
munity in which it is located. 

A branch is an auxiliary^ librar> w ith separate quarters, a permanent basic collec- 
tion of books, a permanent staff, and a regular schedule. It must meet all of these 
requirements. 

A station is a place from ^^■hich books are distributed but at which there is no 
permanent collection or library staff. 

Regularly scheduled bookmobile stops are counted as stations. 

A bookmobile itself is not counted, then, as either a branch or station. 

A school which is served by a public library and has not a central library room 
meeting the conditions of a branch is a school station. It is counted just as one agency 
even though the books may be divided into a number of class-room collections. 

The State Library is interested in type of service given in agencies (e.g. school and 
community) rather than just where they are housed. For our purpose, a branch housed 
in a school but giving service entirely' to the community is something very different 
from a school agency affiliated for school service. The first is counted as a community 
agency, the second as a school agency. 

A school branch or station which gives some conivmnity service is designated by 
(c) following the name of such distributing agency of the county library. A com- 
munity branch or station which is merely located in a school building and not con- 
nected other\\'ise with the school library service is listed only as a community agency. 

Municipal, district and high school libraries which have affiliated with a county 
library for service are counted in total number of distributing agencies of that 
county library, although listed separately from both its branches and stations. 

Branch library statistics are omitted under the names of various branches. They 
are included, however, in the general figures given under the central library. For 
this reason, circulation and other statistics for their own books only and not for 
county service are shown, as a rule, by high school, municipal and other libraries 
which are affiliated with a county free library. 

Total circulation is the count of one for each bound volume, pamphlet or periodical 
lent for home use, from the central library or any agency, and the count of each 
renewal. A county or city library includes in its total circulation the count of supple- 
mentary books lent from schools for home use, but not those used in class rooms 
only. A county library also includes the circulation of county library books from 
all its agencies (including affiliated libraries, which should not include such count 
in their own annual report totals). 

Circulation should not be estimated, but statistics should be kept of actual count 
according to an established system. Municipal libraries serving schools as regular 
stations of the central library \v\\\ report the count of home use (loans for overnight 
or longer from the school or class room collections). When loans are made in the 
name of a teacher of a school just as an individual borrower (rather than for a 
station) the count would, of course, be one for each book lent and one for each 
renewal recorded. 

l7iter-Ubrary loans bet\\'een libraries which are an integral part of the same system 
(branches, stations and affiliated libraries) are not counted in total circulation, but 
rather in shipments from a central library. The circulation from such agencies is 
counted as noted above. State Library books borrowed are included in count of 
inter-library loans and also in circulation of the borrowing library. 

A shipment from the central library is the lot of items sent to one agency at one 
time. One shipment might be two packages or a dozen, and is really a count of the 
times books and other material have been sent to branches and stations. The total items 
shipped would be a count of the individual books or articles in the packages sent. 

We consider a special request to be a request emanating from an individual bor- 
rower, for the central library to supply, through its branch or station, a specific book 
or material on one subject. In this regard community service only is considered, 



VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, I 953 43 

because practically all school requests seem to be special requests. A request from a 
branch assistant or borrower for "more detective stories" would not count as a 
special request. The count is to be made of actual number of requests received at the 
central library, because all the requests forwarded are worked over by the head- 
quarters staff even if they can not all be filled. (Items sent to agencies in response to 
requests are counted under shipments.) 

Janitors and building force (if paid from the library budget), as well as untrained 
assistants in charge of coinmunity branches and stations, are included in the total 
count of employees.

In October, 1951 the County Library 
contracted with Oroville Public Library 
to serve county borrowers living in the 
"fringe" area of Oroville. Resultant im- 
provements in service to the county were : 
better reading and reference room facili- 
ties, longer hours of service, professional 
personnel, use of the children's room. The 
City Library gained in use of books, 
periodicals and clerical help from the 
county staff. Since all circulation to the 
public was centered in Oroville Public 
Library, there was less confusion to bor- 
rowers. 

Purchase of a station wagon improved 
service to branches by augmenting visits 
from headquarters and by expediting 
pick-up and delivery service of library 
materials to branches and stations. 

A News-Letter to Branches, begun in 
.January , 1952, has been helpful to 
lu-anch assistants. 

Paradise Branch was improved by in- 
stallation of new lights, a cooler and ad- 
ditional stacks. New shelving was also 
added at Chico Branch.

The event of the year for Kern County 
Library was earthquake disaster in the 
summer months of 1952. Following the 
quakes and consequent disruption of 
service temporarily, the headquarters li- 
brary and children's department in 
Bakersfield moved first into tents, and 
then into a building at 1680 K Street. 
The Court House was condemned and 
evacuated. 

The Boys' and Girls' Branch, which 
also housed the Children's Department, 
was badly damaged, as was also the Kern 
General Hospital Branch. Baker Street 
and Oildale Branches suffered minor 
damage. Maricopa had to be closed tem- 
porarily, and Taft could be open for 
"limited service" only until it moved to 
424 North Street. Several other branches 
were closed for a time because of earth- 
quake damage of varying intensity to 
other communities throughout Kern 
County. But service was carried on with 
remarkably little loss of time.

tables at front of this issue.

Watei- and Power Div. Library, Public 
Health Library, and also Municipal Ref- 
erence Library. 

During the year a program was begun 
providing for the gradual elimination of 
stations and their replacement by book- 
mobile service. On October 1, 1952, the 
Traveling Branch's full new schedule of 
26 stops was put in operation. The Li- 
brary's consistent experience has been 
that early disfavor toward the Traveling 
Branch vanishes as soon as its services 
ai'e used. The fourth bookmobile put into 
service cost about $6,000, and has book 
capacity of 4,000 volumes. 

Two branches, Gardena and Helen 
Hunt .Jackson, were closed, and a new 
branch opened in Pacific Palisades. The 
Gardena building has been rented by 
the Los Angeles County Library which 
now maintains a branch there. 

Two new branch buildings, modern 
functional in style, were opened in July, 
1952. Westchester Branch replaced a 
station deposit of about 2,500 books. The 
new building has 25,000 book capacity, 
and floor space of 6,100 square feet. 
Total cost was $93,570. The Sunland- 
Tujunga Branch replaced two stations 
with total book deposits of about 5,000. 
Book capacity of this new building is 
21,500, and floor space 4,578 square feet. 
Total cost was $88,307. 

The 25th anniversary of the Central 
Library building was celebrated during 
Book Week, 19.51, by elaborate exhibits 
and special events, including a luncheon 
and tour of the Central Library spon- 
sored by the Board of Library Commis- 
sioners for city officials. 

The first floor lobby of the Central Li- 
brary has been relighted and redecorated, 
and the Popular Library, hitherto scat- 
tered through the corridors, was concen- 
trated in the lobby. 

A collection of literary recordings of 
modern poetry and drama was established 
on a reference basis. 

Integrated service to the businessman 
was effected with a Business and Eco- 
nomics Section in the Social Sciences 
Department. Notable industrial expan- 
sion in the Los Angeles area made this 
service especially desirable. 

Los Angeles Public Library no longer 
pi'ovides free reciprocal library .service 
with Los Angeles County Library. The 
City Council did not approve extension 
of the agreement because of the wide 
mai-gin of county borrowers using the 
City Library in excess of city readers 
using the County Library.

During the year a reference librarian 
was added to the headquarters staff. 
Population increase in Orange County 
has been reflected in use of the County 
Library. Work with children has especi- 
ally developed. More school classes vis- 
ited branch libraries than during any 
other year. 

Three branches have moved into new 
buildings constructed for library use and 
rented. San Clemente moved in August, 
1951 to quarters providing 850 square 
feet, and 6,000 volume capacity. Costa 
Mesa's building, into which the Branch 
moved in November, 1951, provides 1,600 
square feet and 13,000 volume capacity. 
In April, 1952 Garden Grove moved to 
quarters with 1,.340 square feet, 11,000 
volume capacity. Library committees in 
the three communities worked with or- 
ganizations in providing such new furni- 
ture as chairs, tables, draperies. Cypress 
Library moved into a larger building 
remodeled for library use and rented. 
Renovation of Midway City Branch by 
removing a partition and taking in an 
adjacent store doubled size of that li- 
brary.

During the year the Lincoln Acres 
Branch was expanded about 200 square 
feet, the quarters were repainted and 
new light fixtures installed. 

The increase in population in San 
Diego County has resulted in greater 
number of requests and shipments, in- 
creased cataloging and processing of 
books, training of assistants, and admin- 
istrative work. Neither income nor staff 
nor facilities of the County Library has 
been increased proportionately ; so the 
Library has had to establish a priority 
list for development and expansion as 
funds permit.

A county building to house the branch 
library and the fire department has been 
constructed in Terra Bella. It allows the 
library 2,000 square feet of floor space 
and book capacity of 3,000 volumes. 

The interior of Exeter Branch was 
redecorated and new furniture was in- 
stalled in the children's room. Orosi has 
a new children's room. New furniture 
for both children and adult rooms in 
Lindsay Branch was acquired. Earli- 
mart and Panorama Heights Branches 
have been enlarged. Library service in 
the Tulare-Kings Hospital was improved 
by the move to better quarters, enlarge- 
ment of the collection, and assignment of 
an employee to this work. 

The old wing of the Tulare County 
Court House which housed the County 
Library was condemned following the 
earthquake of July 21, 1952. Two teams 
of staff members took inventory through- 
out the system while the Library was 
closed. Headquarters operated in the 
school department, located across the 
street from the old Court House. Later 
the Central Library moved into the 
A.A.U.W. Club House, and full servi.ce 
was resumed.

Miss Bruner took office as head of the Sutro Branch on January 14, 
1924, transferring from Books for the Blind Section in Sacramento. 
The fields of genealogy and scholarly research with the rare books and 
manuscripts that make up the Sutro Library have been the forte of Miss 
Bruner. She has been noted for her unfailing instinct for tracing obscure 
family histories and for her thoroughness in completing exacting research 
projects. The Branch collection has been augmented in recent years by 
many valuable gifts of genealogical material from individuals and societies 
she has assisted. 

On December 3 Miss Bruner was honored at a tea in the Commissioners 
Room of San Francisco PubKc Library. Mrs. Armstrong, head of the 
Genealogical Society, and about sixty other visitors attended.

in the field of Calif orniana, she expects to turn to writing books and articles 
in that field herself. She has ^^'ritten prefaces to a number of books and is 
the author of a variety of articles on California history. 

Miss Wenzel first went to work in the California Section of the Library 
in 1924, and was appointed head of the Section on July 1, 1933. Prior to 
that she had experience in practically every other part of the State Library, 
She has been recognized throughout the country as an authority on Cali- 
forniana, and has received scores of acknowledgments from writers and

SECTIONS-ANNUAL REPORTS

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 
Mrs. Virginia S. Simpson, Supervising Librarian 

Embossed books in the various types are sent to any blind resident 
of California upon application. Lists of material available for loan will 
be sent on request. Writing appliances and games for the blind are lent 
as samples to those wishing to buy such articles, so that the different 
kinds can be tried before they are ordered. Addresses of firms supplying 
all articles lent will be furnished on request. 

Books sent between blind persons and an institution distributing em- 
bossed literature are carried free through the mails. 

Attention of the borrower is drawn to the fact that books for return 
to the Library should always be placed inside mail boxes and not left on 
top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to send post card receipts or requests 
to the Library inside of books. When books are returned they often go 
out very quickly again and the pages are not opened up one by one. 
Therefore, a request sent in that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in the mail separately. 

Under the provisions of an Act entitled "An act to provide books 
for the adult blind," approved by Congress in 1931, and subsequently 
amended, to extend service to blind children, an annual appropriation 
of $1,000,000 is authorized, $200,000 for books in raised characters, and 
the balance for sound-reproduction records and for the maintenance and 
replacement of reproducers. 

The Library of Congress distributes to the various printing houses for 
the blind the assignments of printing books for the blind readers of the 
United States. The California State Library has been designated as one 
of the regional centers to receive the books and the talking book records 
supplied from these appropriations. 

Since May, 1936, the State Library has had the responsibility of assign- 
ing several thousand talking book machines to blind persons in California 
and Nevada. These machines are distributed as loans for an indefinite 
period. Those persons who are interested in borrowing them should write 
to the State Library. They will be sent application blanks in turn as more 
machines are available for distribution. 

Catalogs of Braille and Moon books received through the Library of 
Congress Project, Books for the Adult Blind, are available upon request 
for the period 1931-1948. News Notes, carrying a list of additions to the 
Library each quarter, is sent to each blind reader. The State Library will 
be glad to have borrowers who care to do so write any letters or requests 
for books to the Library in Braille. 

A word of explanation regarding the various grades of Braille will 
clarify the following accession and circulation figures. Prior to 1932 there 
was only one Braille Grade 2 type, which was known as European Braille. 
Books in the English language printed in this type were published only 
in England. The United States publishing houses printed most books for 
the blind in Revised Braille, or Braille Grade I/2. In 1932 the Uniform 



244 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

Type Commission, representing all English speaking countries, met in 
New York and agreed to adopt Standard English Braille, or Braille 
Grade 2, as the standard t)^pe for press-Braille books for adults. Standard 
English Braille Grade 2 is a modified form of European Braille having 
189 contractions. There will be no further additions to the European 
Braille collection. 

Statistics of January 1, 1953: 

Total borro\\-ers . 2,119 

Total talking book machines 3,436 

Total volumes (Braille and Moon) 47,328 

Total talking book containers 8,694 

Magazines received currently 62 

The fiscal year 1951-52 brought an increase in the number of bor- 
rowers, and therefore an increase in the circulation of books. This trend, 
continuing during the current fiscal year, is due to the increased knowl- 
edge about the service among physicians, social workers, and the general 
public and to the availabilit)^ of enough talking book machines for all 
those who want and can use them. The addition of a collection of juvenile 
books in Braille and on Talking Book records will bring an even greater 
increase during the next year. 

Library service to the blind is a very personalized service, and accord- 
ing to our annual custom the State Library sent over 2,000 Christmas 
cards to its blind borrowers. In return the Blind Section staff received, 
as usual, many cards and notes of appreciation from the bhnd readers. 

During the past year there has been a successful attempt to get better 
coordination and cooperation among all the state agencies engaged in 
work with the blind. This should result in better service to the blind 
population of California. The CaHfornia State Library is one of the co- 
operating agencies. In connection with this attempt, jMrs. Simpson was 
asked to attend a Conference of Field Workers for the Blind held in 
Los Angeles November 13-15. There are how 19 Field Workers for the 
BUnd, most of whom have been appointed in the last year or two. All 
California agencies in \^'ork for the blind were asked to conduct a session 
explaining their work and indicating how the Field Workers could use 
those services to help their students. Airs. Simpson gave one morning 
session on the topic: How best to use the ser\'ices of the Books for the 
Blind Section of the California State Library. This has resulted in letters 
from several of the Field Workers requesting material which they were 
not aware was available in the Library before the conference.

CALIFORNIA SECTION 

Allan R. Ottley, Supervising Librarian 

The California Section of the State Library has a working collection of 
printed and manuscript sources dealing with the history of the State in 
its many phases. This section collects and preserves books, manuscripts, 
maps, periodicals, newspapers, photographs, and other material bearing 
upon the development of California. The entire collection is available for 
reference and much of it also circulates. The staff of the department, by 
maintaining a familiarity with the material in its specialized field and by 
preparing indexes and other keys, is able to give expert assistance to stu- 
dents, authors, librarians, and others interested in the State's history. 

Among the valuable reference tools in the Section is the newspaper 
card index, being chiefly an index to the California material in a file of 
San Francisco newspapers beginning with 1847, but also containing refer- 
ences to the earlier Calif ornian (first pubHshed in 1846 at Monterey) and 
to portions of a few other files. The index card gives a brief reference to 
the article, the name of the paper, the date, page, and column. 

An extensive information index is also maintained. This index is of 
great assistance in locating sketches of California persons and places and 
items of local historical interest. 

For many years biographical information pertaining to California pio- 
neers, authors, artists and musicians has been collected, and this file now 
comprises a unique source of such data. Other specialties are the collec- 
tion of California fiction, dramatic material, printed indexes to the great 
registers of voters of the State, business papers, and letters and diaries of 
pioneers. 

The collection of California newspapers now numbers over 20,000 
bound volumes, and there are numerous files of California periodicals. 

The installation of microfilm reading machines has made available to 
public use the library's growing microfilm collection. Most current 
California newspapers now received are being recorded on microfilm 
by the library's photocopyists. The collection of microfilm also includes 
files of several early and rare California newspapers and miscellaneous 
items. Films are filed in special humidity-controlled steel cabinets readily 
accessible to users of the reading machines. 

During the period July, 1951-June, 1952, 1,396 catalog, 22,189 infor- 
mation and 22,438 newspaper cards have been added to the indexes; 
229 processed books and pamphlets, 268 bound volumes of periodicals, 
212 bound volumes of newspapers and 1,287 rolls of microfilm copies of 



246 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

California newspapers have been made available in the Section. 835 sub- 
ject and 826 author request slips were received and 930 letters requiring 
research were answered. 

CATALOG SECTION 

Olive Swain, Supervising Librarian 

The work of the Catalog Section consists of classifying and cataloging 
the new material acquired by the Library and maintaining the public 
catalog, the official catalog, the shelf list, and the Union Catalog. 

The Union Catalog consists of cards from the county libraries and 
various city libraries in California, cards from various university libraries 
and the printed cards from the Library of Congress. Since the Library 
of Congress discontinued supplying cards to depository catalogs, on 
December 31, 1946, Library of Congress entries have appeared in the 
Library of Congress Author Catalog. This publication supplements the 
Union Catalog. 

During the year July, 1951-June, 1952, the Catalog Section cataloged 
5,372 new books, added 2,986 volumes of continuations, filed 32,233 cards 
in the catalogs and added 158,503 cards to the Union Catalog. 

In July our first full-time position for serials cataloging was estab- 
lished. Much was accomplished, through the year, in clearing arrearage 
in new serials. 

The work of compiHng manuals of procedure for all work of the 
Section was advanced by the addition of ten new sections of rules. 

The making of classed catalogs for all foreign language books in the 
library progressed a little, with completion of the file for books in ItaUan. 

Since September, 1951, the filing of the main catalog has been handled 
by a team of one filer and one cataloger working together. Much needed 
filing revision and editing are being done. Many new guides and cross- 
references have been added and old subject headings have been improved. 

Planning for the rehabilitation of the Union Catalog was begun last 
February. Detailed plans and a budget were prepared for a program 
designed to bring the catalog up to date, in one year of intensive work. 
The project, as planned to be started in the 1953-54 fiscal year, includes 
continued maintenance of the catalog, after that time, at an adequate level. 



FIELD LIBRARY SERVICE 

Thelma Reid and Mrs. Bertha D. Helluai, Field Representatives 

The Field Library Service includes a variety of activities relating to 
the establishment and administration of municipal and county libraries. 
Under the direction of the State Librarian, a clearing house of infor- 
mation on library practice, administrative policies and professional 
procedures is maintained through correspondence, interviews and field 
trips. Advice and recommendations regarding library problems ar^ 
provided to librarians, trustees and local officials upon request, 



VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, 1953 ^47 

From time to time the Field Representatives undertake investigations 
of special problems, compiling and interpreting pertinent data in the 
field or in State Library files, and prepares articles and talks on library 
questions and activities. Surveys of city and county libraries are made 
when requested by the proper authorities. Statements on the application 
and interpretation of library law are prepared. Suggestions and advice 
pertaining to the establishment of county libraries is given to individuals, 
organizations, and interested local officials. Other assignments include 
inspection of county libraries, conferring with state and local ofiicials 
regarding school library service, departmental and special libraries. 

In carrying forward this work there are maintained in the Field Office 
files of library building plans, pictures, publicity, equipment catalogs, 
legal opinions, ordinances, library contracts and data on school and public 
library service. Current additions to the collection are welcomed. Librar- 
ians are urged to send copies of plans for new or remodeled buildings, 
pictures, reports of special activities and unusual booklets or pubficity 
releases which may be of assistance to other librarians. 

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS SECTION 

Evelyn Huston, Supervising Librarian 

Since 1909 the State Library's extensive collections of official publi- 
cations of federal, state, county, municipal and foreign governments 
have been organized into a special unit whose responsibility it is to collect 
and to give reference service to libraries and to the general pubHc in the 
field of public documents. In 195 1/52 almost 40,000 new items were added 
to the collection. The staff answered 4,841 reference requests from li- 
braries or from individuals. 

The Government Documents Section emphasizes federal and state 
publications. As a federal depository library it received just under 25,000 
new serials and monographs during the last fiscal year. Under the Cali- 
fornia Distribution Act of 1945 (Govt. Code 13663) which entitled the 
State Library to fifty copies of each publication printed at the State 
Printing Office, 811 titles were received last year. The Section distributed 
almost 26,000 items, mainly California state publications, on exchange or 
by request to libraries throughout the United States. The staff cooperates 
with the Supervisor of Publications Distribution in collecting CaHfornia 
state publications to be listed in his publication, California State Fublica- 
tiojzs; a Quarterly List. Libraries may be placed on his mailing list by 
writing to the Division of Printing, Dept. of Finance, 11th and O Streets, 
Sacramento 14. 

Special emphasis is also placed on acquiring municipal and county pub- 
lications with emphasis on California jurisdictions. Under a 1939 law 
(Cal. Stat. 1939 ch. 430) the library is entitled to a copy of each report 
issued by a city or county in California. A list of these additions may be 
found on page 300 of this issue. 

The State Library receives numerous gifts of documents from libraries 
and individuals. If these are not needed for completing the files they are

added to a duplicate collection and are available for distribution to li- 
braries. Some 5,800 items were received, checked against the catalog 
and added to the exchange collection last year. An enormous collection 
of older California state publications is maintained to assist hbraries in 
completing their files. However, requests for current materials should 
be addressed to the Supervisor of Publications Distribution or to the issu- 
ing office. If you have government pubhcations which you no longer 
need, list them and we shall advise you as promptly as possible of the 
publications we can use. 

The Library's map collection is outstanding in early CaKfornia county 
maps. x\s a depository for the U. S. Geological Survey maps, complete 
files of topographic maps of all forty-eight states and the territories are 
available for reference use. Maps of California issued by the U. S. Corps 
of Engineers, Forest Service, and Coast and Geodetic Survey are repre- 
sented in the collection. A special effort is made to add new California 
maps to the files. Any assistance in notifying us of the issuance of new 
maps or sending us copies Avill be much appreciated. 

LAW AND LEGISLATIVE REFERENCE SECTION 
Herbert V. Clayton, Supervising Librarian 

The Law and Legislative Reference Section is fully equipped with the 
latest reports, digests, encvclopedias, and textbooks, the statutes of other 
states, the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and certain other 
foreign countries, and briefs of counsel in cases decided in the California 
Supreme and Appellate courts. It is the policy to lend books through 
other libraries where possible. State officers are entitled to borrow books 
direct, however. All books are subject to recall, if required by a state 
officer, or if, in the opinion of the Librarian, a recall is fair and expedient. 

In addition to special service to members of the Legislature, information 
on the laws of California and other states and countries is given on inquiry 
from librarians and individuals. 

During recent months the staff has compiled a new (1952) edition of 
Library Laws of the State of California. Copies are available upon request 
to the State Library, Sacramento 9. 

Also compiled and distributed in time for opening of the January, 1953 
session of the state legislature Mas the Handbook of Information for Use 
of Mejitbers of the California Legislature, General Session, 1953. 

ORDER SECTION 

Margaret E. Preston, Supervising Librarian 

The Order Section places orders for all books, periodicals and other 
publications purchased by the State Library. It also receives these mate- 
rials and forwards them to the Catalog Section. 

The selection of books for the Library is done by the Order Librarian 
jointly with the Reference Librarian. Advice on selection is given by other 
members of the staff, particularly in fields relating to their work. 



VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 953 249 

The policy of the State Library, funds permitting, is to maintain an 
adequate collection of standard and scholarly works in nearly all fields. 
This collection is used to fill local requests and to furnish extension serv- 
ice through the city and county libraries of Cahfornia. It is assumed that 
the smaller libraries will be able to buy fiction, light non-fiction, and 
children's books to fill the needs of their communities. The State Library 
makes an eff"ort to supplement this service with books which many small 
libraries cannot buy. Our purchasing is therefore rather closely limited 
to the more substantial non-fiction, including technical books and schol- 
arly works in all fields except medicine. 

The Order Section has done preliminary study on a multiple order 
form which will consolidate the present three or four typings necessary 
for each title into a single typing. It is hoped that we may initiate this 
process soon after the beginning of the 1953/54 fiscal year. 

All accession numbering was discontinued on July 1, 1952. Accessioning 
of bound periodicals had been discontinued in January, 1951.

PRINTS SECTION 
Mrs. Alicia M. Hook, Librarian 

The Prints Section is housed in a specially planned and equipped room, 
in which are kept the prints acquired by the State Library. In display 
cases can be shown about 50 prints at a time and exhibits are constantly 
maintained. Visitors are invited. 

During the past quarter six new prints were added to the collection, 
of which the total is noM- 4,989. There were 906 visitors to the room in 
October, November and December. 

The exhibit in October was a selection of recent acquisitions of fine 
prints to the State Library's permanent collection. In November were 
displayed lithographs, etchings and aquatints by Elizabeth Ginno of 
Berkeley and Augusta Rathbone of San Francisco, and minerals and 
crystals from the collection of Mr. E. E. Pook of Sacramento were shown 
in the floor cases. The Print Makers Society of California had its twenty- 
third annual exhibit in the Prints Rooms in December. 

Statistics for July, 1951-Jime, 1952: 

During the past fiscal year there were 5,121 visitors in the Prints Room. 
Twenty new prints were added to the collection, making the total 4,98 1 
at the end of June, 1952. The bookplate collection totaled 3,894. 

There were three evening receptions or meetings held in the Prints 
Room and two afternoon meetings. Mrs. Hook gave one gallery talk 
and took part in one radio broadcast during the year. She prepared 44 



VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 953 251 

publicity releases. Items cataloged totaled 29 prints, 38 reproductions 
and 42 bookplates, and 1 1 prints were matted. 

Various research projects to identify prints or artists for patrons were 
carried out, and the print processes were explained to groups or indi- 
viduals many times. 



PROPERTY AND SHIPPING SECTION 

Harlo Whipple, Storekeeper 

The responsibility is centered in this section for library equipment and 
supplies, printing of library forms and shipping of books and other library 
materials on inter-library loans. 

Statistics for July, 1951-Jime, 1952:

There was a total of 454,090 copies of forms printed for use by the 
State Library sections, including distribution to other libraries in con- 
nection with inter-library loan services. 

The mailing of State Library publications also was done by this Section. 



REFERENCE SECTION 

Beulah Mumm, Supervising Librarian 

The Reference Section has the responsibility for circulation of books 
and magazines, except those borrowed from the Law and Legislative 
Reference Section and from the Books for the Blind Section. It also 
handles all requests for books and information except those referred to 
the specialized departments of the Library. 

A collection of general reference books is shelved in James L. Gillis 
Hall, the main reading room. 

The policy of the State Library is to lend books through other libraries 
where possible. Individuals in communities without local library service 
may borrow directly upon making arrangements with the State Library. 



252 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 

Through an extended reference service to state agencies and employees 
the Library is contributing to in-service training in the state program. 
Monthly reading Hsts prepared on the subjects of management, personnel 
and accounting are distributed throughout the state departments; books 
and articles useful in solving problems arising directly from state work 
are assembled on request; special assistance is given in preparation for 
civil service examinations. 

The major event in the Reference Section during the year was the 
installation of new lighting fixtures. Dark corners are no longer a problem, 
and patrons are pleased with the new illumination. 

Since adoption of the new revised version of the Bible in the fall there 
has been great interest in Bibles. Some of the State Library's choicest 
Bibles have been shown in Gillis Hall; there was an exhibit at the State 
Fair under the auspices of the Federation of Churches, and many exhibits 
have been sent to other libraries. The State Library has an excellent col- 
lection of Bibles, some old and rare, many in languages other than English, 
and most of them available for circulation. 

A project which is developing steadily is our collection of reproduc- 
tions of the works of modern artists. These mounted pictures are all in 
colors, are large enough to be used on the wall, and are equipped with 
eyelets so that they may be hung. They may be borrowed for a week 
for a special meeting, or for two or three months for exhibit purposes. 
All types of modern art are represented. 

Statistics for July, 19Sl-j2ine, 1952: 

48,442 author requests were looked up, including 8,835 from prison libraries

SUTRO BRANCH 
Richard H. Dillon, Librarian 

The Sutro Branch occupies space in the Public Library Civic Center, 
San Francisco 2. It is open for service Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. 
to 5 p.m. 

This research library is used constantly by both scholars and by gene- 
alogical researchers. It is now one of three major genealogical collections 
in the Far West, and the only one which circulates its materials. A pro- 
gram of expansion of genealogical reference service and increased service 
to scholars, writers and students in the historical field is planned. More 
people are being made aware of Sutro Library's rich holdings by means 



VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 953 253 

of the occasional publication, Sutro Library Notes, of which three issues 
have appeared, and also by articles, exhibits and talks by staff members. 

Development of the Branch Library's rich holdings in rare ephemeral 
materials (manuscripts, pamphlets, etc.) will be carried on and publicized 
in the research world. The collection, now almost entirely cataloged, will 
be made more accessible by intensifying subject cataloging (increasing 
subject cards in the public file), by bibliographies, and by attention to 
physical condition of the books and other materials and their manner of 
housing. 

Hereafter loans will not be made direct to individuals, but rather 
through the patron's local library. 

Statistics for July, 1951-June, 1952: 

Volumes cataloged 491 

Volumes listed 1,262 

Latin books classified 352

EMPLOYMENT REGISTRATION 

The State Library registers those library \vorkers in California who 
are looking for positions and who wish to receive such assistance as this 
registration can supply. 

We shall be glad to know of libraries that want head librarians or 
assistants in any branch of their work. 

Our referral service aims to put applicants in touch with prospective 
employers. Notice of vacancies in college, school and special libraries are 
desired as well as those in city and county libraries. Directors and place- 
ment officers of library schools throughout the United States have been 
asked to notify the State Library of their graduates who are interested in 
California library work. 

In writing for possible candidates, libraries are urged to be as specific 
as possible about indicating type of work in the job they have vacant, 
requirements in education and experience, whether oral interviews are 
required, age limits, salary (including beginning rate and the maximum if 
there is a range), date by which position is to be filled. 

A librarian who wishes to be dropped from the Employment Registra- 
tion list, or a library that fills a position for which it has sought applicants 
through this registry, will help the work greatly by notifying the State 
Library promptly. 

For further information, write to the California State Library, Sacra- 
mento 9.

LIBRARIAN'S CHOICE 

OF CALIFORNIA STATE PUBLICATIONS 



A selected list of California state publications issued during 
October, November, and December, 1952, which we think every 
library will find useful. For a complete list of publications issued 
by California state agencies see California State Publications; a 
Quarterly List issued by the Documents Section, Printing Divi- 
sion, California Dept. of Finance. These publications may be 
obtained by libraries from the Supervisor of Publications Distribu- 
tion or from the issuing agency. Individuals must request from the 
issuing department. Priced items are distributed until the supply 
is exhausted by the Supervisor of Publications Distribution. There- 
after, they must be purchased from the Documents Section of the 
Printing Division. The State Library does not distribute the publi- 
cations listed below. 



Automotive Safety Foundation. California state highways; an engi- 
neering study of improvements required to serve present and future 
travel, prepared for Joint Fact-Finding Committee on Highways, 
California Legislature. 1952. 70 p. 

Although these data were compiled for use of the Legislature and administrative 
agencies in establishing highway policies, libraries should find this publication 
useful in answering questions on California's highway needs. 

California. Bureau of Health Education, Physical Education, and 
Recreation. Teachers guide in health education for secondary schools. 
1952. 85 p. 

Based on two preliminary drafts, this guide presents a philosophy for developing 
and furthering school health programs. Makes suggestions for units of instruction 
to meet the abilities, interests, and needs of high school students. 

California. Dairy Industry Advisory Board. The show-how hostess 
book; your step-by -step guide to easy entertaining, complete with 
menus, recipes, and notes on how to manage. [19521 24 p. 

This well illustrated pamphlet will be especially popular with your younger 
readers. 

California. Dept. of Education. Directory of administrative and super- 
visory persomiel of California public schools, 1952/53. November, 1952. 
196 p. (Bulletin, V. 21, no. 15) 

Every reference department will want a copy of this new directory of California 
school administrators. An alphabetic list of school districts and personnel provides 
an index to the list which is arranged by county. 

California. Dept. of Education. Laws of 1952 relating to the California 
public school system. October, 1952. 60 p. 

This is a useful compilation which should be a must for every library. An index 
would have made it even more useful. 



VOLUME 48, NO. I, JANUARY, 1 953 255 

California. Dept. of Education, Narcotics; the study of a modern prob- 
lem; a mmiual of basic ijiformation for teachers, by Jesse Feiring Wil- 
liams. 1952. 35 p. 

At last we have a manual presenting scientific information on narcotics needed 
by teachers preparing instructional units as required by the Education Code. Part I 
presents the factual information; Part II offers suggestions for teaching the effects 
of narcotics on the human system. 

California. Dept. of Justice. Report of Attorney -Gejieral. 1950/52. 
[1952] 131 p. 

Although this report is directed to the Governor, Legislature and state agencies 
for whom the Justice Dept. serves as legal counsel, it should be useful to the citizen 
interested in tiie operations of the office of chief law officer of the state. 

California, Dept. of Natural Resources. Division of Mines, San Fran- 
cisco. Gypsum in California, by William E. Ver Planck. September, 
1952. 151 p. (Bulletin 163) 

This is a comprehensive treatment on the history of the gypsum industry, 
geologic occurrence and origin of the mineral; mining, processing and marketing 
of the commodity. This report which is generously illustrated with photographs 
and maps should be of prime importance to those in agriculture or in construction. 

California, Dept. of Natural Resources, Division of Mines, San Fran- 
cisco. Fublications of the California State Division of Mines (to October 
1, 1952) [1952] 120 p. 

Whether you catalog the Division of Mines publications or not, you will want 
this new index to their publications. A list of holdings in their depository libraries 
should be helpful in locating copies of scarce items. 

California. Laws, Statutes, Etc. Corporations code. 1951. 268 p. 

The early bird library can get this free from the Supervisor of Publications Dis- 
tribution. Other libraries will have to purchase it from the Documents Section, 
Division of Printing for $1.00. This will answer those problems on nonprofit cor- 
porations and unincorporated associations. 

California. Public Utilities Commission. Annual Report, 1951/52 fiscal 
year, July 1, 1951 to June 30, 1952. [1952] 100 p. 

This report is important to have represented in your collection because of the 
large number of questions involving the operations of this agency and the scarcity 
of published information on the Public Utilities Commission. 

California, State Agricultural Society. Calif orjiia state fair inter- 
national cookery. 1952. 31 p. 

The menus demonstrated through the consular services of various foreign coun- 
tries at the 1952 California State Fair have been gathered into this little pamplilet 
with recipes for each dish. Menus from the Netherlands, India, Greece, Norway 
and Japan are represented as well as Mexico, France and Germany. 

California. State Water Pollution Control Board, Water quality 
criteria. 1952, 512 p. (Publication no. 3) 

Under a contract with the State Water Pollution Control Board, the California 
Institute of Technology carried on the investigation of technical and legal litera- 
ture pertaining to water-quality criteria for the various beneficial uses of water. 
This publication presents the condensation and critical evaluation of the literature 
in this field.
